Jag's impressive SUV could be in line for some big upgrades.
Almost immediately after joining the lineup for the 2017 model year, the F-Pace quickly became Jaguar's best-selling model. Aside from some minor pricing and content changes for 2020, the F-Pace has remained mostly the same since its introduction and even though it still seems fresh in the market, Jaguar is readying a significant refresh.
Jaguar recently released an updated XE sedan and the XF is expected to be the next refresh in late 2019 followed by the F-Pace in early 2020 as a 2021 model. Our spy photographers recently captured what is believed to be the 2021 F-Pace out testing, hiding under some pretty heavy camouflage. What could Jaguar be hiding under all that camouflage?
Automakers typically don't use such heavy camo for a minor facelift. They typically just cover the new bits while leaving the rest of the car visible. This leads us to believe the F-Pace might look drastically different for 2021 with a new front end, headlights, taillights, bumpers, grille, air intakes, and exhaust. The F-Pace is already one of the best looking SUVs on the market, so we hope the changes remain relatively subtle.
This test mule was also completely covered on the interior, meaning we could see some changes there as well. Jaguar's sister company Land Rover just revealed an updated infotainment system on the new Defender which could make its way into the facelifted F-Pace.
Jaguar currently offers the F-Pace with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, 3.0-liter supercharged V6, or supercharged V8 engine. It is unknown whether or not all three engines will carry over into 2021 seeing as the V6 was already discontinued in the XE and the company does have a new inline-six engine in its lineup. Jaguar has also partnered with BMW to supply engines, so we might see a German V8 or inline-six under the hood in the future. Expect to see Jaguar reveal the 2021 F-Pace sometime in 2020.
